Woolly Bully

Standard

So, I just finished the most gorgeous scarf for myself.

The yarn is Woolly Bully by Estelle and the colours (purple and pink and orange oh my) are absolutely stunning.

The finished measurements are 64″ x 8″, not counting the 9″ fringe.

Seriously luscious.

About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, Snap.com commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets, TheOnion.com, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. Hi! I just bought some green/blue/brown woolly bully and am just starting my scarf. I’m wondering, did you just use the knit stitch, or did you use both knit AND purl? I’m a beginner knitter, so I can’t really tell from your close-up image(I know purling usually makes a “V” shape…”.) I can purl, so would include it if it’s needed.

    Thanks!

    Karla, who lives in Manitoba and needs a warm scarf!

  2. Karla:

    The whole thing was knit. Knit knit knit knit knit.

    Not a purl stitch in sight.

    I didn’t bother doing any sort of fancy stitch, since the yarn is star of this show.

    Hope that helps,

    ~Angela

  3. Hi,

    I would love to knit this scarf for my mother’s 80th birthday. I have this exact color too!

    I wanted to know how many you cast on and did you use the #15 (10mm) needle to knit with? If not, what size needle did you use? How much yarn should be put aside for the fringe?

    thanks!
